Dried Fruit Compote



One of the members from the yahoo vegetarian group had posted this recipe.Thanks to MtWitchCat, I loved this recipe. Compote is a dessert made of whole pieces of fruit to sugar syrup. It seemed like a healthy dessert to give to kids. So when my cousins came over I gave them this dessert topped with vanilla icecream. This can be served hot or cold. Both taste yummy.

Ingredients

Water - 1.5 Cup
Sugar - 1/4 Cup
Ground Cinnamon - 1/2 tsp
Ground Cloves - 1/4 tsp
Salt - a pinch
Dried Apricots - 3/4 cup
Dates (Chopped) - 1/2 cup
Dried Pear (Cut into 4 pieces) - 3/4 cup
Saffron (Optional for garnish)

Preparation

Stir water, sugar, cinnamon, cloves and salt in a pan over medium heat till the sugar melts completely. Add the apricots, dates and pears and bring to a simmer. Turn the heat to a complete low. Cover the pan and let it simmer for 20 minutes. Uncover and continue simmering till the mixture thickens. This took me about 7 minutes. Sprinkle saffron before serving.

Fruit Compote is ready and Yummy!!!
